Applying with a licensed outfitter in the 10% outfitter pool can significantly increase your odds of drawing a tag.

You will need to provide a valid credit card to Brugman Outfitting for us to submit your application online. New Mexico Department of Game & Fish (NMDGF) will bill your credit card for the full amount of the license and fees, including a non refundable application fee, at the time your application is processed.
